Please provide a bio (will be read by the parade announcer as you pass by the judges) and
as much information as possible about your parade entries. This helps us allow enough room in the line up area for each group.
Hate groups or groups wishing to spread unkind messages or target others through their participation in the parade will not be allowed to participate in this Chamber sponsored event. The Chamber, as a private entity, will have the final determination regarding participation.
Please note: For the safety of our spectators and participants, candy is not to be thrown during the parade. Any group throwing candy will be asked to leave the parade. Unit members may walk and hand out candy. This is a safety issue to protect our children and will be strictly enforced. Those with children participating in the parade must assume responsibility for the safety of those children. The Chamber is not responsible for accidents or injuries caused by participation in the parade. Participants assume all risks and responsibilities.
